Testimonies by Benjamin Jurovics identify Siegfried Wachsner born 1862 in "Bzesinky" and Rosa Wachsner geb. Simenauer, wife of Siegfried, as his grandparents, and Edith geb. Wachsner and Samuel Jurovics as his parents.

Edith's marriage in August 1919 was witnessed by Siegfried aged 62 years and 22 year-old Elfriede who both lived at the same address as Edith. It is reasonable to assume that these are Edith's father and sister; however Siegfried's age should have been 57 years if he were born in March 1862, the date given by his death certificate. He is recorded in the 1939 census with a date of birth of 16/03/1862.

Deported from Berlin to Theresienstadt concentration camp on 15/09/1942.
